D.R. Barton, Jr. – the newest addition to our Advisory Board – shares his background, his thoughts on this explosive industry, and the moral questions he encountered when entering this field. Take a look…
I am incredibly honored and excited to be the latest addition to the National Institute for Cannabis Investors Advisory Board.
In all of my years of trading experience, I’ve never seen an industry with the kind of explosive profit potential that cannabis has right now.
I’ve been digging into the tools and tactics to profitably trade volatile stocks for over three decades. So, when a new sector like pot stocks comes along that captures the excitement and imaginations of traders – it catches my attention.
I love trading stocks that move much more than the average stock. And stocks that move a lot AND have amazing long-term upside potential are even more intriguing.
How I Found My Calling
Long before I ever appeared as a market analyst on national TV or co-authored a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling book, my career began on a much different path. My formal education was actually in chemical engineering, in which I hold a B.S. from Virginia Tech. I then went on to earn an MBA from the University of Delaware.
For years I worked for DuPont, developing various chemical processes and systems – including working on the country’s first continuous system for processing waste uranium.
So why did I make such a drastic change?
It wasn’t that I was unhappy as an engineer – far from it. I just wanted the kind of financial freedom that would allow me to spend more time with my family, working with my church, and doing the things I truly enjoy.
This cannabis investing tool holds everything you need to help get the jump on other investors. For your chance at an absolute fortune, go here now.
So one day, I decided to apply all of my scientific knowledge and experience towards developing my own trading strategy that ultimately allowed me to retire from engineering, co-found a hedge fund, and make more money than I ever thought possible.
While all of that success was wonderful, there was still something missing. You see, from a young age my parents always instilled in me the importance of helping others. It has been one of the guiding principles of my life.
And so, these days I spend my time pursuing my true passion – showing investors like you how to build financial freedom of their own. I provide readers of my 10-Minute Millionaire with twice-weekly market analysis and trading tips.
The Question That Led Me to Cannabis
I was digging into some earnings of cannabis stocks several months ago to discuss them live on set with Stuart Varney on his Fox Business Network show. After we talked about the earnings report, Stuart surprised me with a question – which requires some subtext. Here’s the verbatim question he asked: “But would you buy a pot stock? You don’t have a moral objection to buying a pot stock?”
The subtext is this: From our discussions off screen, Stuart knows that I’m a Christian. More than that, he knows I’m an all-in Jesus guy. On air, he has called me a prominent Christian when asking me another “Pop Quiz” question about Sister Theresa’s sainthood a couple of years ago.
So the underlying question, in my understanding, was this: “As a practicing Christian, do you have a moral objection to buying a pot stock?”
I answered that I didn’t, since cannabis is now growing legally in many states and is being used medicinally.
But afterward, I found that the question really challenged me. So in addition to digging into how to best trade these volatile stocks, I’ve done a deep dive into the moral, spiritual, and societal aspects of cannabis legalization.
As a member of the NICI Advisory Board, I look forward to contributing the same technical trading expertise and insights – insights that have allowed my readers to double and triple their money time and time again – to help you build a fortune from this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
I look forward to a long and profitable relationship with the Institute.
Great trading and God bless you,

P.S. Forbes reports that, by 2022, we could have more cannabis jobs in the U.S. than manufacturing jobs. This, along with potential tax revenue, is a huge sell for politicians in the race to federal legalization. When – not if – the federal government legalizes cannabis, the industry could jump to $100 billion in the United States alone practically overnight. Our experts have uncovered four pot stocks you need to know about before this market potentially explodes. To find out more information, go here now.
